What is One-to-One Computing?

One-to-One Computing (aka 1:1) is an educational concept where every student has full time access to the same laptop computer for use in the school environment and at home. The student and his/her parent/guardian are socially and financially responsible for the assigned computer for the school year. Through this program, teachers will be able to work with students in various ways and with different expectations than in the past. Students will expand their sources of research, engage in meaningful real-world assignments, seek out legitimate digital information to solve real world problems, and collaborate with their peers, teachers, and career/subject area experts in new ways.
